A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... (cue theme music 🎶) . First of all, thank you to @penguinrandomhouse for sending this book to me. My family’s tradition for as long as I can remember, is to marathon all the Star Wars films on Thanksgiving Day. (I’m talking IIII, V, VI. Doing ALL of them gets more impossible with each new release now! Ha) But because of that I’ve been raised a SW fan and I thought this book was such a fun and awesome way to celebrate 40 years of Star Wars. (Especially with all the awesome names that contributed!) . This is a unique anthology that takes 40 different contributors (best selling authors, trendsetting artists, and treasured voices from the literary history of Star Wars) that each retell/reimagine a scene from the original film through the eyes of a supporting character. . So we’ve got POVs from the original film from Captain Antilles, Aunt Beru, the monster in the trash compactor, Grand Moff Tarkin, and revels on Yavin, just to name a few. . I’ll throw a shot of the cover on my stories so you can look over all the contributors names. I’m sure you’ll recognize many of them. But I’ve honestly loved reading some of these chapters and would love to talk to some of the authors about their experience writing them. I think I would die if I’d been asked to contribute to something as cool as this. . What’s one fandom that you’d love to creatively contribute to?
